Census Bureau Teams Up With Tech Giants to Connect With Millennials and Other Hard-to-Count Populations

New uses of technology are transforming the way the U.S. Census Bureau will attempt to count every person in the United States once, only once, and in the right place. It's a long way from the last decennial census in 2010, when all the questionnaires were on paper and an iPhone 4, early Samsung or HTC cellphone were considered state of the art. Now there is a broad array of social media platforms and chatbot technology, plus millions more homes now have consistent access to the internet.
